New problem (#2) to solve
Source:  VGTU project@Home

Dear VGTU@Home users,

We start solving the new problem. The problem size has been increased. First problem of our new dynamic visual cryptography application was essentially solved in one week. We have reached the speed of 625 GigaFLOPS. Using 4 nodes of our computer cluster, the same problem would be solved in around 180 days.

At this point, we would like to thank our users for not abandoning the project and active participation, especially our top users, who currently make a major contribution to the project! Our current top contributor is Ralfy from the BOINC Synergy team, which also our current top team.

Our problem is a global optimization problem from the mathematical point of view. So, we will always have a user, who will be lucky to find the optimal solution. This time the lucky workunit was solved by Bazooka_CZ from the Czech National Team. Congratulations! :-)

We use this opportunity to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With best regards,
The Project Team.

About GULP Application
jeudi 24 décembre 2015 11:30

New application aimed at testing stability of the GULP code.GULP is a program for performing a variety of types of simulation on materials using boundary conditions of 0-D (molecules and clusters), 1-D (polymers), 2-D (surfaces, slabs and grain boundaries), or 3D (periodic solids). Adaptation of this code for BOINC is a first step to implementation of the computational materials discovery methods to the distributed computing. More specifically, USPEX evolutionary algorithm. This is an algorithm for crystal structure prediction, which is a problem of global optimization, i.e., finding the global minimum of the free energy of the crystal (per mole) with respect to variations of the structure. Successful solution of this problem requires local optimization for each structure generated during prediction. GULP is one of the methods supported by USPEX. That is why we have adapted it for BOINC and providing a test caclucation for it. This is variable cell calculation of the crystal structure of magnesium aluminate (MgAl2O4) with 28 atoms per unit cell at 100 GPa pressure.

Fall brings a new team leader and a new type of simulation to run. In addition, the team has started working with partners to synthesize promising compounds. The overall goal remains constant, however: to identify materials that can generate clean, renewable energy.

minirosetta_beta has been updated. Please continue to post bugs/issues in this thread.

do you have any experience with running a VM based application in BOINC?

There are projects giving out VMs instead of normal applications. We are considering it. How is it? Does it work? thanks. gdf

Hello guys! We recently published a paper which used a considerable amount of GPUgrid simulations. It would not have been possible without your contributions. The paper is: N. Ferruz, M. J. Harvey, J. Mestres and G. De Fabritiis, Insights from Fragment Hit Binding Assays by Molecular Simulations, J. Chem. Inf. Model., 2015, 55, pp 2200-2205 You can also browse ranking positions ;) : Thanks to all! Noelia

Working to detect lung and ovarian cancers before they start

Recent stages of the Mapping Cancer Markers (MCM) project have illuminated the protein-protein interactions and biological pathways involved in lung cancer, and have also suggested surprising results about its biomarkers. Once this current stage is complete, MCM will transition to analyzing ovarian cancer. Thanks to your help, we are making discoveries and helping the international research community. Dr. Jurisica, in particular, is one of the most frequently cited researchers worldwide.
